Best Doctors® 2015–16

Best Doctors Inc. is transforming and improving healthcare by bringing together the best medical minds in the world to help identify the right diagnosis and treatment. The company’s innovative peer-to-peer consultation service offers a new way for physcians to collaborate with other physicians to ensure that patients receive the best care.

Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, the global company seamlessly integrates its services with employers’ other health-related benefits to serve more than 30 million members in every major region of the world.

More than a traditional second opinion, Best Doctors delivers a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s medical condition—providing value to both patients and treating physicians. By utilizing Best Doctors, members have access to the brightest minds in medicine to ensure the right diagnosis and treatment plan.

Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients. Using a polling method and balloting software that Gallup® has audited and certified, they gather the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise.

The result is the Best Doctors in America® List, which includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors whom other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list that is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top-quality medical information.

Gallup® has audited and certified Best Doctors Inc.’s database of physicians and its companion, The Best Doctors in America® List, as using the highest industry standards survey methodology and processes. These lists are excerpted from The Best Doctors in America 2015–2016 database, which includes more than 40,000 U.S. doctors in more than 40 medical specialties and 400 subspecialties. The Best Doctors in America® database is compiled and maintained by Best Doctors Inc.
